Top note Briefcase ...

I don't know about you but when I go off to work I'd like to take a Briefcase that holds all the essentials.
This little bag fits the bill perfectly: the chocolate filled brief case!
It holds two Moser Roth 25g chocolate bars (wrapped together) with a piece of taffetta ribbon.
The bag is made with just one Big Shot Top note die.
Don't you just love the Cherry Cobbler and River Rock coloured cardstock together.
 Here it is from the side... The gold wrappers make a nice corner to the Briefcase.
I scored the Top note at about 4.5 cm from the centre on both sides to give a 1.5cm flat edge to the bottom of the bag.
 The fold over clasp is made with the new Decorative label punch (from the Autumn/Winter mini catalogue).
For texture it has been run through the Big shot with the Square lattice embossing folder.
The Label is wrapped over the top and held with sticky strip on the back and just snail on the front for easy opening. (For those emergency chocolate moments).
The "press-dud" is a Rhinestone Jewel.
 The straps are really easy (being made of cardstock). Two x 1cm wide and 20cm long strips (also textured with the Square lattice embossing folder). 
The Cherry Cobbler Top note was "embossed" with the Vintage Wallpaper Pattern.
 And No stamping ... I could have put a tiny tag on the handle saying Enjoy... or Thanks ... or a sweet little heart.
Perhaps next time, this one is already eaten.
This Exclusive project was brought to you by "Stamping Joy" and the Big Shot machine!
